Yet another Egyptian-themed slot has been released, but one might just say that this one has its own charm and uniqueness. When it comes to this theme, we have seen it all, but Cayentano Gaming managed to make it interesting and released Egyptian Wilds. It’s a 5 reel slot, with 3 rows and 10 paylines. With great features that ensure great payouts, this is a game worth the players' time.
Using an Egyptian theme is very common in the slot industry, so a provider has to try quite hard to make the game stand out from the crowd. The designers of Egyptian Wilds did just that and created one of the better games out there. Just like any game, it has its cons, but when it comes to appearance it's definitely something different.
The action takes place on a temple hugged with palm trees suggesting that it's a real paradise. Faintly painted in the background are the beautiful blue sky and the sandy city. It's not like the usual slot with the same theme. Usually, this type of slot is on the darker side with a very mysterious feel. This game is the exact opposite. It truly is a beautiful picture made in vivid colors, which brightens up the mood quite a bit.
The graphics and design of the characters is great. Some of the symbols include regular card symbols, pyramids, the Sphinx as the scatter, and the Ankh as the wild symbol. The soundtrack is probably the best addition to the game. It’s Egyptian music that’s very cheerful, with sound effects of ritual chants. Other slots with the same inspiration behind them, also have music that represents the culture, but it isn’t as upbeat. It raises the anticipation by the player awaiting the next win and adds a lot of fun to the playing.
The game has great looks, but not only that, it has great gameplay as well. The player can bet a minimum of 0,10 and a maximum of a 100 coins per spin. It’s a medium volatility slot with the RTP set at a quite low 93,51%. The payouts in the main game aren’t that big, but they are very frequent. The bonuses are there to help the player score higher and thanks to them the player can win up to a 1000x the stake.
The game has two creative features, to go with the amazing design. As mentioned before the Ankh, or the black cat represents the wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter. When appearing the wilds get to be locked in for up to 6 spins. The number of spins that the wild stays locked in is chosen randomly. This is a feature of the base game, so the wins aren't guaranteed to be as high.
On the other hand, the Free Spins feature is a very rewarding one. The player has to land at least 2 scatter symbols in order to activate the feature. When activated, the player gets 10 free spins with the sticky wilds active to insure a huge win.
The game has shown itself as one of the best from its type, at least appearance-wise. The design is very unusual and bright, which is great since it reminds of a happy place. The payouts in the base game are low but frequent and the free spins round is where all the magic happens. The only thing that could disappoint a bit is the low RTP, but considering everything, it's not that bad. Overall, it's a game worth taking a look at.
